“Astrology is the complete repository of man’s psychological knowledge”

Carl Jung

Astrology, when studied from an esoteric, evolutionary and spiritual perspective, is an incredibly accurate and valuable tool that, when the teachings are personally applied, enables access to the subconscious and super- conscious mind. Our birth chart indicates our potential. It also provides accurate information as to the psychological lessons we have incarnated to identify and overcome.

Since 1987 Ashtara has used astrology as an accelerated learning tool to gain greater self-awareness. She realised that for things to change externally first she must change internally.

She learned to become aware of her self-destructive psychology and transform it. As her self-awareness increased she took personal responsibility for the way she creates her life.  She teaches her students to do the same.

Our old way of being no longer fulfils or enriches life. When it’s time for psychological and spiritual growth, challenging situations arise in our life. They provide the opportunity for us to learn about ourselves. This inner journey requires the development of self-awareness and the willingness to take personal responsibility for all we think, feel and create. This inner revolution occurs according to cosmic timing. It’s dependent upon the specific relationship of celestial bodies to each other, and the effect of their energetic force field on individuals, and the collective consciousness. Ageless Wisdom identifies and defines this cosmic system and provides information as to how best to manage it.

Ashtara began teaching her perspective on astrology in 1992. Since then she’s written many articles and books on the subject.

Her classes and workshops are enlightening, fun, purposeful and filled with insights. Each one is designed to assist students raise their levels of self-awareness.

To aid student’s personal and spiritual development Ashtara wrote three astrology books titled Your Recipe for Empowerment through Spiritual Astrology. These three books, Volumes One, Two and Three, guide students to work with their birth chart to gain greater self-awareness. These simply written books are accelerated learning tools. Students who cannot attend classes also regard them highly. They need to be studied and the teachings applied to daily life.  They contain valuable information; stories to demonstrate the written concepts, and exercises to help students integrate the teachings.

“I started studying your book and my chart in earnest a few days ago, and I just wanted to let you know that the effect has been immediate! I’ve barely started and yet I can feel movement already in my heart, mind and soul, beyond that which I have experienced before in my (this) life/spiritual journey and this is because of your guidance through your words and teaching.

I feel such a magnetic pull to your words and teachings that I can hardly describe, and I sincerely hope that I can continue my studies in spiritual astrology with you, as far as it will take me in this life.

Thank you, Ashtara, with much love.”

Belinda Burman

Some esoteric principles govern her understanding and are:

  • We humans are, in essence, divine
  • We are each a fragment of the Universal Mind, the Mind of God.
  • We have a lower and higher nature.
  • Our higher nature is that of spirit. When realization and acceptance of the magnificence of our higher nature occurs, life changes. We can no longer operate unconsciously, robotically replaying the same old fear-based psychological games. We begin to function as a soul.

Ashtara, Thank you for an up-close, personal and revealing journey through your classes.  I am eternally grateful”.


“What a fabulous workshop – thought it was perfectly presented in a fun way (Ashtara style) – a reminder that we often take life too seriously- absolutely loved your way of combining astrology with acting and a sense of humour – it really moved things along”

Nuria Breier

“Ashtara, thank you so much for yet another fabulous workshop. I came away with a much deeper understanding of how I can use astrology as a tool to deepen my self-awareness and to make the right choices to create health and harmony in my life. By the end of the day I felt very peaceful, joyful and energized!! Thank you!”

Kathy, Tweed Valley

There’s lots to write about today. First will be astrological terminology, followed by my interpretation. I’ll focus on the soon to end internally challenging cosmic square formation between transiting retrograde Saturn in Aquarius and retrograde Uranus in Taurus. The first exact square ( a 90 degree angle) between these two cosmic players took place on 18 February 2021 - the second on 15 June 2021 and the third on 24 December 2021. For the first twelve days of October 2022 both these planets are in a tight, but not exact, square at 18 degrees. Then they begin to separate and...

New Moon in Libra - 26 Sep 2022, 7.53am 2 deg. Libra 48 mins - oppose retrograde Jupiter 3 degrees Aries 48 mins This New Moon also squares (a 90 degree challenging angle) goddess Pallas Athene (8 deg. Cancer) and she in turn squares Chiron. Our internal 'Warrior Woman’ goddess needs to adopt a more feminine approach. Her fighting and angry war-like traits need harmonising so that a more harmonious and balanced approach to life takes place. So many of our ideas about ourselves and our world are in a state of flux - many are changing. Mercury and Venus...

The Record Keepers speak of societal collapse. Transiting Pluto moving through Capricorn is the activator of this process. I've written about this many times before so won't bore you again with a lengthy discourse. Next year in March  and for brief few months following, Pluto moves into Aquarius. This will be telling. Alternate news will print their version of  truth. Main stream media will report on what they are told. Sensitive souls will feel the energy shift. Will there be an unusual global event that will be the Aquarius signal for futuristic change? I suggest you keep your ears, eyes and hearts open....

One of the lesser known aspects of astrology is the study of the Asteroid Goddesses. Whenever I’ve taught my students about these goddesses life enhancing breakthroughs in their self-awareness resulted. We unconsciously express the themes associated with each of these goddesses to create havoc in our lives. Once conscious, we can change our psychological games and, as if by magic, our relationships immediately change for the better. There is a High Priestess within each and every one of us who walks the path of divine love, power and wisdom. This is the path of spiritual self-mastery where we are initiated...

In Esoteric Astrology the above information relative to the energy of thought has been known and taught by Djwhal Khul, (D.K.) known as The Tibetan, for centuries. He is a spiritual Master and an incarnate Tibetan monk of high standing. In the earlier part of the twentieth Century he worked through Alice A. Bailey, a clear channel. She produced about 30 books on various aspects of the esoteric sciences. It is interesting that some of our modern scientists are realising the accuracy of this ageless wisdom. And that it is coming to the forefront of the collective human mind. “Esoteric...

Approximately once every 26,000 years our Earth moves into a different area of space. This period of time is known as an Astrological Age and is connected to the precession of the equinoxes. In 2022, planet earth is no longer situated in the area of space known as the Age of Pisces. At the beginning of that Age, Jesus, sourced from a higher dimension, was born with a highly evolved consciousness. He became a Christ. He was a Way Shower, demonstrating self-knowledge, self-responsibility, self-assurance and a deep connection to God. He taught, mostly through parables, how we could develop the...
